John the Baptist was the son of Elizabeth and the priest Zechariah. He preached repentance. He lived like an ascetic in the desert. At Jordan, he announced the arrival of the expected Messiah by the Jews. Preparing the people for his arrival, he practiced the baptism of repentance with water as a symbol of salvation on the day of the coming judgment.
